How you know you've been married to someone for a long time...

When you both (anonymous) choose each other's cards in Cards Against Humanity. Yeah.

Fascinating

It makes sense, but balconies are so ingrained in our cultural imagination, it's hard to think of an England with no balconies whatsoever.
Shakespeare didn't even know what a balcony was—so how did one end in his most famous scene?

He has a point.

(Also, see the link below for a funny but pretty accurate summation of Epicurus's guide to living.)

“Let no one be slow to seek wisdom when he is young nor weary in the search of it when he has grown old. For no age is too early or too late for the health of the soul. And to say that the season for studying philosophy has not yet come, or that it is past and gone, is like saying that the season for happiness is not yet or that it is now no more. Therefore, both old and young alike ought to seek wisdom, the former in order that, as age comes over him, he may be young in good things because of the grace of what has been, and the latter in order that, while he is young, he may at the same time be old, because he has no fear of the things which are to come."

Huh. I need to get a good translation of Epicurus. Wonder if he's a little bit too much "hey can't handle nervous women"?

Oh my god

I'm pretty sure nothing I've ever read about, heard, learned about - not even the worst shit of WW2 - is as depressing and awful as World War I. 

God, I cannot even begin to imagine what it must have been like. Especially on the Western Front.

What gets me are the people with PTSD that were executed - mentally destroyed men executed - because commanders, who'd never been to the front, who had no freaking clue, thought it was cowardice.

Found this randomly...

Love Philip K. Dick, so checking it out. So far (five minutes in), it's absolutely gorgeous, visually...
Based on Philip K. Dick's award-winning novel, and executive produced by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), The Man in the High Castle explores what it would be like if the Allied Powers had lost WWII, and Japan and Germany ruled the United States. Starring Rufus Sewell (John Adams), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars) and Alexa Davalos (Mob City).

Conversations One Has

As one does.

Me, from a conversation just now, looking at a latitudinal map of the world: "Well, that explains how the Titanic got where she got."

...perspective is a thing, yo.

Once again, Roberts sides with non-crazies

Maybe there's hope for him yet.

Introduction
If you're looking for Felicity, the voice teacher, you can find my official studio page here:
Felicity Graham Vocal Studios

As for Felicity, the individual...
My primary (mal)function in life is vocal pedagogy and research. I teach singing in general, but also specialize in helping retrain previously injured voices. I get overly enthusiastic about what I do, and can talk about horrific voice disorders for days. (Fair warning: if you ask about it, you will probably get more information than you ever wanted.)

I love life. It's beautiful, it's grand, and if I could, I would sing my way through through each day like a Disney film. 

Gadgets are my friend. If I don't have a smart phone, tablet, e-reader, chromebook and/or other fun things around me, something is very wrong. And yeah, I anthropomorphize my electronics; they love it. 

I'm star-struck. Not Hollywood stars, though. I'm fascinated with space and space travel, and I hope to see colonies on other planets before I leave this one.

If it can't stand up to a double-blind, randomized controlled trial, don't call it science or medicine. It's not. Vitamin C is not a cure for cancer, and vaccination doesn't cause autism. 

Since I cannot see or prove any deity's existence (and neither can anyone else, for that matter), color me agnostic. I don't believe in organized religion, and that includes Libertarianism.

I have no patience for selfish doctrines, be they political or religious. I've had about as much as I can take of "Me First" politics. I could die happy, never seeing another "privatize the [insert government agency here]" post ever again. 

I don't suffer racist fools gladly. Take your "welfare queen" dog whistle and shove it where the sun don't shine. 

Other than that, all I ask is that you engage with me. I'm not here for the fan clubs, I want to make friends. :)
Bragging rights
I'm alive. This is probably more of an accomplishment than you'd think.

Had a lovely Valentine's day meal here. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was impeccable. The prix-fixe holiday menu had lots of interesting options - everything we tried was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Dr. Adler has always been helpful, open to dialog, and very pleasant. Couldn't be happier with the experience I've had.
